I told my husband yesterday morning that he needed to walk the dog. I had to listen to the news and be on my computer to follow SCOTUSblog, a live blog covering the US Supreme Court. I’ve never been so anxious about a pending Supreme Court ruling as I was about the one the Court made yesterday on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
This past week, I talked with many of my health care colleagues, and while we all view the ACA as an important first step in transforming health care in the United States, many of them had a doom-and-gloom attitude. Recent court rulings had shown a conservative slant that didn’t bode well for the ACA.
